Discovering that her boyfriend had lied to her made her realize that the relationship might not have been worth the effort she was putting into it. He went as far as checking up on girls he wanted to date. Notice his word choice and language. It sounds to me like underlying this is that on some level you know you're trying to control him, and he's fighting back, in a passive and unhealthy way. It is one of the stepping stones to healing broken trust in a relationship.
My boyfriend and I have been together a year and a few days ago, I found out that he had started talking to another female. As much as I wanted to forgive them, and feel like I did and have, interacting with them was no longer the same. Now I was either going to live that relationship out not trusting him and checking up on him or I was going to start enjoying the relationship again and living it to the full…. When I confront him he becomes very defensive. He has changed a lot from the first time I met him. Did he just lie, or did he cheat? Did it get them out of trouble, make them look good in front of others, or prevent someone's feelings from getting hurt? Some people who lie are unable to control it.
Look for these body language cues to determine if your boyfriend is telling a lie. I accepted his explanation as I have never had reason to distrust him in the past. Playfully deflect to get your friend to admit the truth. I do love him but somewhere I fear that he might do it again. The answer to that question is likely the answer to the larger question of whether you should stay with him or not. The problem with these sort of lies is that the truth usually shines through. But I went to his place unannounced.
Learn how you detect his lies and avoid those. After all, this is the guy you love and rely on, to be honest with you. When you do something wrong, it is normal to feel guilty. But I had already seen he did. Some excuses or compensations look very believable but boy… if you find later again that those were just lies,….
Guys hate to look bad, so you need to think of the context of the lie. After almost a whole year of him lying to me the guilt got to him and he told me the truth. Say exactly what you did that was wrong and that you are sorry. I just cannot comprehend how a man who wants to take me as his wife could openly be so untruthful. So all in all, though I am still in this relationship, I think it is always better for you to leave the relationship unless you are 1800% sure all other characteristics, his situations, family, friends, habits, life goal, moral and priorities are absolutely in line with yours. They told me they saw him At his family party and he had said he was going to be working that day. Forgiving you does not mean that he automatically forgets.
People are much more kind and forgiving than you think. Be honest with him and tell him how much you hurt, and even more importantly, tell him why it hurts so much. Did you instigate such an action? A calm, clear explanation from you is going to resonate with him much better than name calling, crying or making unfair accusations, and will make it much more likely for him to be honest in the future. First, where there is deception, there is no relationship. For best results, use the following red flags as markers of areas you need to discuss further. You may have to sit down with a pen and paper and write it all down. If your friend lies habitually, take steps to cope with the problem and decide how you want to move forward with this person in the future.
Make it clear you do not appreciate being lied to. Pathological liars may need professional help dealing with the problem. The night of the event was also my Birthday…. You value honesty, or else his lies wouldn't hurt you. If your boyfriend is lying to you, you will find out in time.
Hey YouTube, Amy North here, welcome to my channel. So without further adieu, what should you do if your boyfriend lies to you? Make him comfortable enough to spill the beans. Be patient with him if he has any questions about the incident. Moving forward from your guilt and setting the right course to rebuild your relationship will also mean that you must receive forgiveness from your boyfriend. For everything he or she does, you will always be one step ahead of the game. I will put all the trust I can give him and love him. So, give both of you a chance.
Robert Feldman, author of The Liar in Your Life, recommends that liars be confronted, because to pretend the lie never happened makes the victim a liar too. Your boyfriend may find it hard to trust you again, or believe what you are saying. He may also lie to avoid conflict or to avoid having to stop his bad habit. He thought I was precipitous in doing so—I, like you was onto the 5th lie. I decided not to date and have been catching up on my college work and never been better with life. You trust that person so much that you pour your heart out to that person, tell every secret, deepest and darkest desires that you have only thought of in your subconscious mind… you trust that person so much.
The problem with these sort of lies is that the truth usually shines through. Consider the context around his lie. If you catch him in a lie or notice telltale signs he is lying when he is speaking to you, think about what you were talking about together that triggered the lie or motivated him to lie.

Unfortunately, you may feel as if you are walking on eggshells until trust is restored.
